Hybrid Zoysia Grass Seed
Hybrid Zoysia grass is the progeny of
three parent plants which have yellow-white flowers. Each
parent was selected for superior attributes such as leaf
texture, color, disease resistance, drought tolerance, fall
color retention, uniform color when dormant, and early
spring green up.
Hybrid Zoysia Grass is medium dark green
color, a medium density, and will tolerate light shade. It is planted in
late spring to early summer with a seeding rate of 1 to 2 pounds of
seed per 1000 square feet. The seed should be very lightly covered with
soil by raking. Cover the seeded area with straw to retain soil moisture
during the germination period. Water the newly seeded lawn very lightly
three or four times per day to keep the seed moist for best
The seed will germinate in ten or more days. Gradually reduce
watering frequency, but give the lawn longer soakings to establish the
new grass root system.
In general, the zoysias are slow to cover completely (thus more
costly to establish), less drought-tolerant than bermudagrass, and
recommended for lawn use only when the homeowner is willing to provide
the required maintenance.
